Let’s Start Relieving Your Pain Today
I Can Help You With…
Chronic Body Pains
I have over 30 years of experience handling chronic pains like back pain, elbow pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, neck pain, foot pain, and headaches. I can test your body to see exactly what it needs to get you back to living a pain-free, healthy and independent life.
Lymphedema is a condition where the lymphatic system becomes overwhelmed and the body swells in an area or region. I use complex decongestive therapy to relieve the swelling. Although there is no cure for lymphedema, physical therapy can dramatically decrease its symptoms so you can resume your everyday activities.
Sciatic Nerve Pain
The sciatic nerve runs through the buttocks and down the back of the leg to the foot. When this nerve gets irritated it can be incapacitating. I work with you and your body not just to resolve the pain quickly but to improve the relationship between all your body parts so the pain becomes a thing of the past that doesn’t affect your life again.
The pelvis at first glance seems very solid, however, it includes 3 joints and many muscles which if not working together can turn your life upside down. Connecting the brain to the pelvis and all of the muscles in the region using our proprietary system of evaluation, customized treatment, and a customized home program will give you your life back.
Incontinence can be embarrassing and hard to talk about, but we are great listeners. Let’s work together to figure out what type of incontinence you have and how to re-train the muscles to work as a team again. Kegel’s contractions are not the answer as the integration of the pelvic floor muscles with the abdominal muscles, hip muscles, and all the other body parts, especially the brain can set you free once again.
Falling and Loss of Balance
Falling is the number 1 cause of death in people over 70. You don’t have to be one of these unfortunate folks who fall, fracture a bone, and meet their maker in less than a year. Many balance programs teach you how to balance despite the imbalances and dysfunction in your body, which you have come to think of as normal. Our proprietary system brings your body into balance from the inside out resulting in a vast improvement in your ability to function safely in the community while improving many of your body systems.
Trauma is defined as a situation that overwhelms the individual, emotionally or physically. The truth is it usually involves both. Trauma can affect a body region or the entire body. To address the trauma, I evaluate the entire body and how all the areas were affected by the trauma, then plan to bring the body back into balance through our proprietary system which is both gentle and compassionate.
Some physical therapists believe, especially after surgery, no pain – no gain. We believe in minimizing the pain, to maximize your gain. We see faster results with less pain as we support your listening to your body and respecting its needs and wants. Of course, we encourage stretching the proverbial envelope when using our proprietary system to integrate your body after the trauma of surgery, but tearing the envelope is not part of the treatment philosophy.
My Approach & Philosophy
My philosophy is that the body can and does heal itself. When we give it the right support it can and does heal itself faster.
What is the right support?
Asking the body through tests and using a scoring system to allow your body a method of communication. Using this information to develop a treatment plan allows your body to lead the process.
90% of our movement happens on a subconscious level. Actual healing occurs by including this subconscious part of our brain and integrating the muscles, joints, and other body parts while restoring healthy movement.
